Yellow McLaren 650S Spider Clearwater St Petersburg Car Photography

The 650S follows the McLaren 12C which some said was a little boring for an exotic car (I didn't think so).  The 650S borrows design elements, like the above McLaren logo shaped headlights, from the P1 hypercar giving it more than enough flash for a midengined supercar to look the part.

It is always nice to spend time photographing a supercar.  I imagine it as far, far nicer to actually drive one!

Ferrari F430 Spider in Yellow Tampa Florida Car Photography

Ferrari F430 Spider in yellow photographed at Tampa International Jet Center - Nikon D300 Tamron 17-50mm @ f/5.6 ISO 200 1/125thAt the 2012 Cars & Couture event in Tampa, Florida I had the opportunity to photograph this stunning Ferrari F430 Spider in Modena Yellow.  It was parked next to four other Ferraris fortunately at the end of the line so I could make some clean photographs of it.  As you can see it also happend to be sunset time making for an ideal backdrop.

After work contemplation

Staying away from the crowds, just my style too.

While I was photographing an event, I noticed the man pictured above looking out over the Bank of America Tower's expansive lobby.  The work day was finished and a social gathering was just behind him, but he took his drink over to that balcony and chose to stare off into space instead.  I was really interested to know what he was thinking and why he was off by himself.  

The yellow tones are natural as the large windows of the building's lobby were being flooded with late afternoon Florida sunshine.

Which type are you?  The go off by yourself to do a little thinking type, or the type that would be in the middle of all the after work socializing?
